I buried him down by the river
Cause thats where he liked to be
And every night when the moon is high
I go there and weep openly

He and I were married
By this river neath this willow tree
And with God and friends witnessing it
He pledged his life to me

To me he was earth
And I rooted in his soil
I to he was sky vast and free
Of the burdens from which he toiled

Then one night a terrible fight
Words spoken better left unsaid
With his wedding vows ringing in my ears
He gave his life to me

They say to love is to bury
Those demons from which we all hide
But tonight by this river neath this willow tree
Becoming one of earth and sky

Well they say, to love is to bury
All the demons from which we hide
But tonight by this river neath this willow tree
Becoming one of earth and sky
